A great finish and great store

     After the last post, I am trying to be more upbeat. And still trying to beat the migraines. I have had shots in the neck, lidocaine down my nose, and other lovely things that get dreamed up medically. 
     But, I was so thrilled to finish Calico Rose!! I got the checkerboard on and I just love it. It looks instantly at home. Thanks Deanna for the quiltalong! Now, I am trying to determine a backing for it.

     One woman from blog space told me about a store called Delta Patchwork. They had an unbelievable clearance sale- top quality fabric like Marcia Derse and Frond for around $4.00 a yard. I ordered a whole lot of scrumptious fabric I never see in stores around me. The shipping was free. On Monday, a white box was delivered and inside were two bundles. In my migraine haze, I was disappointed because I did not order cutesy woodland fabric that I saw. However, each package was in a plastic bag and individually wrapped in beautiful paper. The taping was impeccable. It had a sticker on the front and a color postcard from the company with a personal message that said thank you for shopping. I was stunned. I waited a whole day before unwrapping as I was enamored with such beautiful packages (think My Favorite things song). The fabric was as I ordered and I was overjoyed.

Awesome, huh?

I'm so sorry about your migraine problems. I wish yours were solvable as mine were with dietary changes. I hope you get a solution soon.
I love the quilt and nice packaging is always a pleasure!

Beautiful flimsie. How great to be able to move that top along. And, wow! I'm amazed at the fabric price and gorgeous packaging of your purchases. If I knew about it I would have been purchasing way more than I needed! Hope the migraines get under control soon.
